Post all questions about the forum upgrade here. :Kool

Please note that we had to reload the new forum so some things may already be fixed in cluding the "Search" function. :Kool

Appears as though anything posted since Wednesday has disappeared?

(Edit) Disregard, just saw the other post re this.

I was hoping the moderators names print size and color would stay like it looked at midnight when the board came back :( Like Rocky's My caps and clips :Kool

A few comments/suggestions off the top of my head:

1) the old board's banner should have a direct link to the new board, I'd hate to think that we lost anyone because of the subtle URL change. I actually thought the board was down for a day.

2) this isn't an issue for anyone who bookmarks, but should the URL really be case sensitive? 'http://wideworldofwomen.net/Forum'?

3) Search - I liked it better before, I really don't think anyone cares to see the highlighted text of everyones comments in a single thread when the results show up
e.g.) search for Robin.... and you get every comment about how she looked if the lookup term is mentioned
the thread should be caught once in the results... so the max possible threads show up per page... we shouldn't have 284 pages to parse through for Robin

For HSF's 'Robin Meade 20090722' alone we have quite a few... because fan's post comments that trigger the search... e.g.
'I love Robin's grapes!!!'
'Gorgeous Robin i want those grapes'
'I'd love to share a box of Cheez-Its with Robin...

these shouldn't be that hard to fix, but other than that, i really like the new features, way to modernize the board! :rock

1. We are working on that. We also sent a mass e-mail to every member with a working e-mail address as to the new location. It seems to me, looking at the members showing up here, that the majority of the dedicated members have migrated here and carried on as usual.

2. Sorry about that, it was how the forum was set up. Even the URL for the old forum had capitals in the link.

3. Search is much more improved with this upgrade. Can't do much about it.


Thanks for the feedback. Stay tuned for further announcements on new features of this upgrade. :D

Thanks for the response. You're right about #2, I never noticed that. Regarding #3, which I think would be a general issue for most users, in the search options, could you make 'Display results as: ' default to the radio button 'topics' instead of 'posts'? I was messing around and found that this would fix things. Otherwise, we have to constantly select topics everytime we want to search. I don't know if another option could be to have saved preferences for searching, this way everyone can have their cake. :Banana

I don't know the mechanism that makes this happen, but in the old board when you clicked on a link it opened in a new window/tab, but the current board opens the link in the same window, stepping on what you were looking at.

Thank you for moving the messages/logout to the right side of the page. For some reason I would always hit log out instead of messages :? :Kool

We didn't move anything. Yoda reloaded a theme since he was messing up the coding and everyone was forced into it just so we could get the ads to work again. :Joker :jetserl
